After helping me through 7 months of PT for a SLAP repair last year, I can’t recommend them highly enough. They are friendly, courteous, compassionate, and jam-packed full of knowledge and expertise.

I love Impact Physical Therapy. This is my second visit to this facility and both times I have had Shayne as my therapist. Shayne is great – no she is fantastic. I had a total knee replacement in January and I was able to recover quickly because I did presurgery therapy with her. I am now back with a dislocated shoulder and am feeling better with each sessionBe sure to check this place out. They have great equipment and everyone is extremely professional

Came here seeking treatment for long-term, nagging hamstring pain that had not been fixed by a variety of treatments tried by a previous doc and a previous PT. Kara Mathys re-assessed me, ran me through some great strengthening exercises and localized treatment (dry needling and scraping), and when that didn’t work, kept at it to figure out the problem was in my back, not at the site. She stretched me out to improve back mobility, and I’m finally healed. Thoughtful approach, great attitude, listens well, fun to work with. Thanks, Kara!

I’ve had a really good experience with Lauren – she does a great job of explaining the science behind the techniques we used, and I’ve definitely improved.

I was brought to impact physical therapy after working with traditional physical therapists at Rush. I am an athlete and some of the techniques that are traditionally used are too gentle for somebody with athletic abilities. My therapist it is kind, but she really works the muscles that need to be worked and for the first time I feel like there is a change in my back. If you are looking for a physical therapy experience where you are going to get results, I would recommend coming here. I will probably need one more surgery and I have already decided that I will do my post surgical recovery work at impact. They are the right combination of tough and caring.

My husband recommended his physical therapist Lauren and I am happy he did. I’ve been in 3 times (in one week b/c my ankle sprain has been pretty painful) and I already feel so much better!! Don’t delay like I did, just call and they’ll pencil you in!!

Long overdue review. Lauren worked with me for 2 months last fall to help resolve my tennis elbow pain. She provided excellent care including deep tissue release, scraping, and ultrasound, as well as exercises to strengthen the muscles around the joint. Appointments are easy to schedule with desk staff, facilities are clean and well-maintained, and overall they provide a very comfortable environment for PT.

Leo takes time, is very knowledgeable and explains everything thoroughly. He wants you to understand why you are feeling pain and how he is going to help you get rid of it. Very clean and updated offices. Staff very friendly. I recommend to anyone that is in need of physical therapy. He has helped me greatly with my 30 year old back injury. Excellent and exceptional.

If you’re injured or in any kind of pain this is the ONLY place to go! I had several car accidents and I saw several doctors, pain specialists and physical therapists. However, none of them helped me even half as much as Leo and his team did. Leo was the only one able to cure my pain and make my body work properly again. Additionally, he is very nice and super easy to talk to and work with. He is an extremely knowledge and gifted therapist who’s a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend this business even if you need to travel far for it. You’ll get the best service and treatment here.

Leo is a wonderful therapist! He makes sure you know what he’s doing, and explains what the therapy will help. He also demonstrates exercises to do at home, and makes sure you are doing them correctly before you leave! Leo is very professional and knowledgeableI couldn’t have made a better choice.

There are not enough stars to rate my experience at Impact Physical Therapy in Hinsdale! The environment and atmosphere at Impact are so welcoming and comfortable as soon as you walk through the door! I was always treated with kindness and compassion by everyone in the office – even the therapists who were not directly working with me. My physical therapist, Dr. Tim Rylander, is a top expert in the field of concussion recovery and I was so fortunate to be able to work with him! HIs expertise, professionalism and genuine care for me as a patient were evident from very early in my treatment plan. His sessions were well planned out and challenged me in the needed areas. He worked with me and believed I would reach my goal of returning to the career I loved when many others thought it wasn’t possible! He was always so positive and encouraging! I know I would not be where I am today without him! Impact Physical Therapy in Hinsdale is truly a special place!

My experience at impact was very positive. I truely believe my goals will be meant. At this point I would give them a 5 star rating and see no reason why this shouldn’t continue to be the norm.😀

This is my second experience with physical therapy. My first experience was at one of the major physical therapy groups in the Chicago land area. I was recommended to a specific therapist Tim Rylander whom helped me successfully recover from a couple of sports injuries and I would highly recommend him. After struggling with my current injury, my trainer recommended that I meet with mpact Physical therapy due to his success with them. I had rememered Tim but I decided to give them a shot because they happened to be more conveniently located. When I walked in for my first appointment, I recognized Tim and can’t tell you how releved and happy I was to see him especially because he is the mansgima partner. Although my initial consultation was not with Tim but with another therapist, Chris Harter. I can’t tell you what a great experience I am having with Chris, the facility and the staff. Chris is a graduate of northwestern and embodies the sensitivity and touch anyone would want while recovering from any injury. The space is modern and inviting with tons of glass and the support staff are super friendly and helpful. It does not feel like a typical “medical” environment. Their unique recovery room offers some of the latest innovations for athletes and anyone looking for assisting with injury or sore muscle recovery. I would highly recommend both Tim and Chris and really any of the therapist at this facility.

When my neurosurgeon suggested physical therapy instead of a fourth back surgery I was lucky enough to find Impact Physical Therapy. Their knowledge, professionalism, patient focus, communication skills, state of the art equipment and realistic goals far surpassed any other physical therapy company that I’ve used since my first surgery 15 years ago. I strongly recommend Impact Physical Therapy.

I am 71 years old and had pain in my leg at night and also was not able to stand up completely straight. Gretchen figured out what was causing the problems AND what to do to fix them. The therapies and exercises have helped so much! I have no more pain in my leg and I am able to stand straight. If an exercise didn’t work well for me, she came up with other ones until she found one that I could do. She, the other therapists, and the receptionist are excellent, thorough, creative, caring professionals. I highly recommend Impact Physical Therapy.

Impact is a wonderful place to do physical therapy. The therapists are knowledgeable and friendly. Gretchen is very knowledgeable and helpful in coming up with ideas to make an exercise conducive to the stage of recovery. She’s been available by email or text, in between sessions, if I have questions or concerns about exercises I can do at home. It’s a clean, upbeat environment. I definitely recommend Impact for any physical therapy needs.
